	I believe Catalyst depends on DBIx::Class, which also tries to turn 
off the connection caching features provided by Apache::DBI (if I'm 
recalling correctly) -- if this is true, then it could certainly help 
to explain the lesser performance in a ModPerl environment.

	To be fair, I think it would be important to run benchmarks against 
a number of different products (some with database dependencies, some 
without, etc.), and make sure the same peformance enhancing features 
(such as database connection handle caching) are functioning (or not 
functioning) across the different environments (e.g., mod_fcgid, 
mod_perl2, etc.).
